Luxair Orders Four 737 MAX 7 To Grow Single-Aisle Fleet

Luxair and Boeing announced today at the Paris Air Show 2023 that the Luxembourgish carrier has chosen the 737-7 as part of its single-aisle development plan. Luxair has chosen the 737-7 as its European launch client, with a purchase deal for four planes. Luxair has made orders for four 737-8s from March 2023. With today's announcement, the airline's commitment to four 737-7s brings the total number of firm orders for the 737 to eight. Luxair will also lease two 737-8s until the summer of 2023 before receiving direct possession of its first 737-8.

"We continue to invest in Luxair's growth, and this agreement for four Boeing 737-7 aircraft is another step toward ensuring our national airline's long-term future." This type of aircraft is a fantastic match for Luxair and will fulfill market demands. The 737-7, which seats 160 people, will provide flexibility across the Luxair destination network while considerably decreasing fuel use. This will enable us go even closer to our commitment to sustainable flights, while also proving our support for IATA's pledge of "Net-Zero carbon emissions by 2050," stated Luxair CEO Gilles Feith.


Boeing's continuous commitment to sustainability is apparent in the innovative design of the 737-7/8. When compared to the planes it replaces, each 737 of this new generation will save up to eight million pounds of CO2 emissions every year. Furthermore, these aircraft are quieter, with a 50% lower noise footprint than the planes they replace.

"We are delighted that Luxair has chosen to expand on its 737-8 order by selecting the 737-7, becoming the airplane type's launch customer in Europe," said Brad McMullen, senior vice president of Global Sales and Marketing for Boeing Commercial Airplanes. "The 737-7 is ideal for Luxair's network, seamlessly integrating into its existing fleet and adding capacity on regional routes." Luxair will run a single fleet with the 737-7, allowing it to shift aircraft throughout the network, increasing and decreasing capacity based on seasonality and demand, assuring optimum profitability flying all year." Luxair now has a fleet of 19 aircraft, eight of which are Next-Generation 737s.
